Loren Bouchard and Josh Gad penned 'Central Park,' which features voice cast that includes Gad Leslie Odom Jr. Titus Burgess Kristen Bell Stanley Tucci Daveed Diggs and Kathryn Hahn

Apple has ordered a new series for its TV service called "Central Park".

Already greenlit for two seasons, the series will follow a family of caretakers that work and live in the famous NY landmark. Among the cast are Hamilton Tony Award winners Leslie Odom Jr. and Daveed Diggs, as well as Tony nominee Josh Gad and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Emmy nominee Tituss Burgess.

As they make moves to eat away at the marketshare held by streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu, AppleTV announced today that they have picked up a new animated series from Bob's Burgers creator Loren Bouchard.

The series was developed at 20th Century Fox, where Borchard is based with Bob's Burgers. Central Park marks the 12th known television show that is being invested in by Apple.
